Iron Mountain Expands Online Backup

BOSTON and SAN FRANCISCO -- Iron Mountain
Digital, the technology arm of Iron Mountain Incorporated (NYSE: IRM) and the
leading provider of Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) for backup and archiving,
announced at the Macworld 2009 Conference & Expo in San Francisco today that
its Connected(R) Backup solution will be available in March 2009 for Mac
users. The Connected Backup solution provides businesses of all sizes with the
ability to protect vital corporate data, regardless of computer platform,
through secure and reliable online data recovery and unmatched scalability.

The Connected Backup solution with Mac support provides the same award-winning
features as Connected Backup for PC, including fast, automatic backup without
user interruption or IT intervention; an end to data loss from viruses,
misplaced or stolen laptops, data corruption and user error; and finally, the
solution gives IT control of secure backup and restoration both inside and
beyond company firewalls. The solution also enables IT to centrally manage
distributed data backup from Mac or PC laptops outside of the office.
Customers on PC or Mac computers can retrieve lost or damaged files without
help desk support with anytime/anywhere system rollback even when away from
the office. The solution's patented data reduction technologies reduce
storage needs by up to 85 percent.

"The number of enterprise Mac users is on the rise and companies are in need
of the same high-level data backup and protection available for PCs to protect
vital corporate data," said Cieran Cosgrave, head of managed services, 2e2, an
Iron Mountain Digital channel partner. "Iron Mountain Digital's addition of
Mac support allows us to offer our customers the highest level of security for
their corporate data regardless of their computer platforms."
